Brenda Ponnay (aka Secret Agent Josephine) and I go way back. Wayyyyyyyy back – in fact, it was Brenda who encouraged me to start this blog back in 2005! (Which, of course, led me to search for past entries about SAJ, and well, there went my entire morning.)
Tiny aside – do you all remember this video of Wito and Baby Bug?
Our sweet babies!
If you haven’t heard of SAJ, let me tell you, this artist/illustrator/writer dynamo is the bee’s knees, and she recently published three children’s books! She’s been conducting a virtual book tour over the past month, and I wanted to ask her a few questions so you could get to know her better. HOWEVER, being the letter W on the tour means that pretty much every question has already been asked of her by the other book tour participants. So, I called in the big gun. Wito. Here is a transcript of Wito and Brenda’s interview.
Wito: What is your favorite color?
SAJ: My favorite color is RED.
SAJ: Because it’s bright and happy.
SAJ: Because it’s on the warm end of the color spectrum. It’s a hot color as in FIRE! FIRE!
SAJ: Because I don’t know? Something about wavelengths and science. Go ask your Mom.
SAJ: Because she is smarter than I am and probably memorized all that stuff.
SAJ: I don’t know. Maybe because she is a genius just like you. And she can memorize whole books. Maybe YOU should get back to ME with that answer.
(Just to set the record straight, I’m pretty sure Brenda is smarter than the two of us combined, but thanks for the nice words, SAJ!)
Take a look at these adorable books.
They’re completely charming, and perfect for holiday gifts, whether they be in paperback or electronic editions. (All electronic titles are only $2.99!) My postillion has been struck by lightning.
Keep track of SAJ’s Stealthy Book Tour here (there are fun clues to collect along the way), and check out all of her awesome books. I’m so proud of you, SAJ!!!
Oh! One last thing. Brenda is offering one 8×10 “W for Whale” print to one of the commenters!
Just leave a comment with your favorite “w” word by Monday, December 19th at 6pm PST and you’ll be entered to win! (My favorite “w” word is “whirl,” which I wanted to be the URL for this blog, but it was already taken. Hence, Whoorl was born!)
